We hope you like the products we recommend. Just so you are aware, Freshome may collect a share of sales from the links on this page. West Elm has long been a go-to choice for anyone who prefers a modern aesthetic. You can find its furniture and textiles in homes across the country. But it isn’t settling for making its mark on the residential domain. It’s now pushing into the commercial space through a new partnership with Steelcase.
It makes sense, then, for a leader in office design (like Steelcase) to look to a leader in home decor (like West Elm). By mirroring what we love about our homes in our workplaces, we might just fall in love with where we work, too. And employees who like where they work are more likely to show up on time, be creatively stimulated and stay in their positions long-term. In short, investing in the products of this new Steelcase and West Elm partnership could help companies keep turnover down and build their best teams.
Speaking of…under the bed storage such as rollaway drawers is always helpful in creating more space and can hold seasonal or limited use items. Storage chests with cushions can be used as a seat to a play table as well as conceal a mountain of toys. A wall unit with drawers can pull double duty as a dresser and desk. Shelving is super convenient for toy organization as it doesn’t take up a lot of space and can be placed above dressers, desks, even above the door for hardly used items. Similarly, placing a bookshelf at the foot of the bed doesn’t take up valuable wall space and may even give you another surface near the bed for a lamp or nighttime book.
The ability to fit a sink amongst countertop space plus appliances is always a challenge. Designers like Ensci are making kitchens that are all in one. Slidable counters that uncover a sink, cooking range, cupboards with cabinets beneath is an innovative way for multiple people to work in a small kitchen is ingenious.
